NTAS CARRIES BIG CHARTER GROUPS

Two Qantas charter flights in the next fortnight will carry a

total of more than 240 members of special groups between Australia and

Europe.

On May 30, a Qantas 707 flight will take about 80 members of

the Ulster Society from Sydney to London. The group is travelling

under the reduced fares made available through the Commonwealth

Government's. charter scheme introduced last year. The Ulster group

will return to Australia on September 29.

On June 1, another charter flight will pick up about 164 members

of the English/U.FC. Club in Brisbane and fly them to London. The club

members will return on July 14.

In both oases, the returning flights from London to Australia

will carry assisted migrants from Britain, including one group from

London to Perth.
